TULIP with shader
This tutorial is for guidance only, maybe other settings are better for you.
It is an example of how you can get shades of color, and light in your flowers.
1. Create a new Document 800 x 800 pixel
2. Pen Tool with this settings:
3. Draw a stalk with a green colour: 0D9532
Draw two leaves
5. Switch the color by pressing the curved arrow
6. Give Gradient:
7. Turn Leaves slightly with the Move Tool, and move them into place on the stalk
8. Draw light with yellow colour and set the Layer blend: Overlay
9.Give the light Gausian blur so it looks soft. Remember check in Scale with Object. I use 2,2
10. Pencil Tool: Draw a petal ... Stroke:
11. Switch Colour
13. Pencil Tool: draw lines to the petal . Stroke: same settings like before
The bigger your petal is, the bigger the strokes must be
see the lines in relation to the petal on screen below
14. Select all lines layer ... give the same Gradient as before.
15. While it is selected: Go up in layers ... Expand Stroke
16. In the layer: Blend Colour Dodge
Press fx in the bottom of the Layer Panel
17. Settings like here below ... check in Bevel/Emboss ... remember checkmark in scale with Object
18. Press at fx in the bottom of the Layer Panel. Check in Gausian Blur, and set Radius 2,2
The line layers are still selected
19. Pull the layers down under the Petal layer.
Press the line between the layers ..... release the mouse button where you see the red dot below
20. Make the other petals the same way. Duplicate the layer with the first petal. , and Flip Horizontal
Then you are missing the middle petal. See the picture below on the right. Put the petal in place
21. Make the last petal in the same way as the other two
22. Pull the layer down under the other 2 petals and move the petal in place
You have now 3 petal
23. In the Layer Panel: select all 3 petal layer, right click ... Group
Now my layers look like this
24. Press on the top layers with the lines Draw the light with yellow color. Give it Gausian Blur as before
25. Set Blend to Overlay.
The shape of the light is not that important. it just has to sit in the right place. Gausian Blur should be s
et differently depending on the size of your petal. Try your way through the settings
